Here at VegVoyages Foundation, we’re always on a mission to make the world a better place for all its inhabitants. Today, we’re excited to share the news with you: a heartwarming tale of transformation that encapsulates the essence of our partnership with TOBA Animal Friends in North Sumatra.

We collaborated with TOBA Animal Friends in North Sumatra with the goal of humanely controlling the population of stray dogs and cats, reducing their struggles on the streets. With this collaboration, we aim to mitigate the issues of overpopulation and improve the overall health and well-being of these animals.

We’ve already transformed the lives of 44 dogs and cats! And here’s why spaying and neutering are such game-changers:

  • Reducing Overpopulation: Fewer stray animals mean fewer struggles for food, shelter, and safety.
  • Promoting Public Health: With fewer strays, there’s less risk of disease spread.
  • Dismantling the Dog Meat Trade: Sterilized animals are less likely to end up in harmful trade practices.
  • Health Upsides for Animals: Post-sterilization, animals experience fewer health issues and are more adoptable.


But wait, there’s more! Our collaboration extends far beyond surgeries and immediate relief. We’re sparking a ripple effect in the community, challenging ingrained misconceptions and igniting conversations around animal compassion and public safety.

We couldn’t have reached this milestone without our phenomenal collaborators from TOBA Animal Friends, our generous donors, and the caring community of Vegan Travel Asia by VegVoyages travelers. Thanks to your continued support, we’ve been able to fund the necessary equipment and medical staff required for these life-saving surgeries. The cost-effectiveness is not just in numbers but in lives transformed.
